“Locals frequest this restaurant - so should you!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

We traveled here from the US and went to one of the other Thai restaurants in town. There was no one there. We left. We went to a hotel next door, ask the doorman where there was a good thai restaurant and he sent us a few blocks to here. It was well worth the walk!

There was a short wait, but we also didn't have a reservation. Nice atmosphere, bustling with people, friendly staff and bartender. The food was good. Not so much on the calamari appetizer, but everything else seemed good. They were out of cold (fresh) rolls and the portions were good sized. Our waiter was friendly and engaging. Spicy was spicy and mild was mild.

On a scale of 1-10 this was a 9 overall. Pricing was very reasonable.

“excellent food, reasonably priced”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

I ate here with a friend on a weekday evening. The restaurant was reasonably busy. The cold spring rolls were excellent and the entrees (golden thai shrimp and cashew chicken) were good as well. the waiter was obviously very busy but also very professional and ensured our water glasses were filled. Overall, this restaurant was a good experience with tasy food at a reasonable price.

“Love this restaurant, the food is always amazing!”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Had dinner here last night and once again, enjoyed every morsel. We had the pork spring rolls and calamari to start. Both were excellent. The calamari had a lite but crispy batter and was not over cooked as you find at so many other places. Next we enjoyed the lemon shrimp soup, served in a terrine big enough to feed 4 people. We weren't disappointed with the volume, it meant we got to enjoy the wonderful lemongrass flavor over and over again. For our mains, we ordered tamarind scallops, mussaman beef curry, golden Thai shrimp and an order of coconut rice. I highly recommend all of these dishes. The beef was incredibly tender and was balanced nicely with chunks of potatoes and yummy sauce. My all time favorite dish now has so be the golden Thai shrimp, it was so amazing. My only complaint is that it left me wanting more. The scallops were also cooked perfectly. During the meal we enjoyed a mango mixed drink made with white rum and mango ice cream, so good. For dessert we shared the rum fried bananas which were also great, with some awesome ginger tea. Love the atmosphere, the service was perfect. Our water was consistently topped up and the cheque came promptly. The restaurant was full, but there was no break in the quality of service. Can't wait to go back again! Hats off to the chef, who we found out has been cooking at the restaurant for 21 years! Highly recommended, hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

“A Nice Thai Restaurant”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

My friends and I found a Goldn Thai Restaurant through Trip Advisor and decided to try it out since it was very close to a friends new apartment in Toronto. I thought the food was good, but certainly not the best Thai restaurant I have ever been to. We shared 3 apps (Spicy Calamari, Chicken Satay, and Sring Rolls). They were ok. I ordered the Golden Thai Shimp in a red curry sauce and thought the dish was delicious. The flavor was perfect. Definitely the best dish at the table. My friends ordered Cashew Chicken and two Spicy Beef Noodles. We didn't care so much for either of those dishes as much as we liked the Golden Thai Shrimp. The service was very good, the atmoshpere was very nice, and the prices were very affordable. I think definitely worth trying if in the neighborhood.
